Due to all the delays and cancellations going on in light of the tragic ferry accident, it comes as no surprise that EXO's mini-album is next to be postponed for an uncertain period of time.


SEE ALSO: EXO reportedly making a comeback this summer!



Through the boys' official home page, SM Entertainment said, "After learning of the sinking ship incident that happened on April 16, all of SM Entertainment's artists, executives, and SM family are struck with grief and sympathy.


After discussing the schedule for EXO's music release, album release, and future promotions in the country, SM Entertainment decided to tentatively delay the release of mini-album 'Overdose,' which was planned for April 21."


The agency also said, "We ask for understanding from the fans who'd been awaiting the music as this decision resulted from our desire for the safe return of the passengers and condolences for the victims.  We thank the fans for their great interest in new mini-album 'Overdose' and will later on announce the release date once it's been confirmed."

I am actually really thankful for SM and EXO for pushing the album back. Honestly, the reason why you guys are wanting the album to come out is because you guys aren't affected by the ferry. However, as someone who personally knows someone on the ferry - though I don't know her personally, our family are friends and I have seen her once in a while - I am glad they're doing this. Though death is inevitable, it's only been four days. FOUR DAYS. Yes, there is a slim chance that anybody is alive but we all have a thing called hope. Be thoughtful for Korea right now. How could you guys worry about whether or not your album is going to get delayed when people around ages 17 and 18 are currently stuck under water?

For the EXO fans that are being thoughtful and respecting SM's decision, I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart. These days, I've been hating on all Exotics because I believed that you were all narrow minded but seeing many twitter posts made me re-think this opinion.

However, to the EXO fans that don't care at all, I want you to re-evaluate your life. Honestly, an album is more important than a life? True, them doing this isn't going to help the ferry at all but it's a thing called respect. How could EXO push out an album when so many people in Korea are mourning right now? Just because your parents are "strict on you" doesn't give you a right to be a selfish bitch. You all say you're tired of waiting but families have been waiting for days without knowing whether or not their son or daughter is coming back. In Korea, most of the families only ;have one son or daughter meaning that they might lose their only child in this accident. Be more considerate about the families right now before you open your mouth and spew out stupidity.

Most people here don't give a fuck about what happened.....they just want to get pluses when they say something nice.....Which is not a bad thing because you should be nice unlike me.......I don't care about what happened on the ship to be honest.....Idk anyone on there so eh.....yeah I'm a dick but that's how I was raised.....my parents are strict on me.....this incident has nothing to do with music and they should just release the MV because I'm tired of waiting.....and stop talking about this accident like it's the fucking titanic......which I also don't care about

Wow, are you serious? You sound like you have a terrible life to be so heartless in a situation like this, Teenagers and children were on that ship, most of them are dead, get it through your skull please, and the "my parents are strict" Isn't a great reason, guess what my parents are strict too but they don't make me who i am today.

@preshy Having a terrible life is no excuse for being inhuman, so don't give this twit any reasons to think that what he's saying and feeling are okay in any way.

@jeniferl A couple of people on here did complain in the later posts. Most were sympathetic (but frankly people don't like Exostans that much so they will probably blame it on our entire fandome). I think that a lot of the people who complain are just trolls, even though this is a serious matter, or people who are trying to give exotics a bad name. But even the exotics that are complaining feel bad. I just don't think they really understand how this event connects to kpop (I think thats what they are complaining about). But I'm not really sure how they feel cause I thought what SM did was the right thing.

i can wait until whenever for exo's comeback . ;

i feel sad and horrible for all those people missing and for the families of those people missing . im praying that a miracle happens and those people missing are hopefully found alive .

even if the death toll is slowly rising , theres still hope .

some of you have the guts to even talk about how your order is gonna be late or something like that on here . you know whats even way worse than your order coming in late , the fact that as your saying that , some one's life is being taken away or at risk . so stfu and keep those comments to yourselves please . if your so curious , ask the person you ordered it from .

and trolls that everyone is saying , even if they are trolls , they need to get a damn life .dont be commenting useless and disrespectful stuff on things like this just for attention .if you want attention so bad , go to the streets and start making a goof out of yourself .

and to those people that are showing respect and care for those missing , thank you . at least there are still people like you guys alive . because if the delayed is a month or so of more waiting , many people will show their real selfs and complain about how late the comeback is .

show respect at least please . im an exo fan too , and im dying for their comeback too , but all of that can wait . more important matters are here . to be saying that about 300 people are still missing after 3 days of searching is a big matter and its so sad . & most of the students could be your age . imagine yourself just ready to enjoy a fun trip and the next second this tragic happens . put yourselves in the shoes of the missing victims and the families of the missing victims .

to many families , it might have been the last time to ever hear of their child . so please show respect . you dont have to show that you care , but at least show respect .

south korea is the home of kpop , the home of where most of us want to visit . to just say that this tragic has happened here is big enough .and the number of people missing and feared dead is already horrible .

so show respect and #prayforsouthkorea .
